Rock Band aus version

17 Replies 749 Views Created 27-11-2008

I have recently purchased rock band and instrument bundle (aus version) and have been downloading songs from the rock band store with no probs, But...whilst I was browsing for songs I noticed that there were some songs that say they have already been purchased and are not on my song list during gameplay. When I try to download these songs again it wont let me.

 Are these songs unlockable throughout the game or is there another reason why it states they have been purchased?

Did you buy all these songs off the Aus PS store, or from the US one?

 

I think if you get DLC from a region that doesn't match the region you got the game from then the game won't recognize the DLC.  So although your PS store account would show you've already downloaded it, the game wouldn't recognize it.

Purchased all songs from aus ps store, but you must not have read my post correctly. There were songs in the store that had been purchased already. And the game was purchased from big w along with the band kit.

Off Topic -

Rockband for 219 at target hornsby if youre in Sydney.

Worth a swing up there to see if you can grab it

I dont know whether there are other target stores which

have the same deal, but hornsby one does.

When I left there were like 4 or 5 instrumental packs left.

=p

You do not have to unlock DLC. As long as you have downloaded and installed it, it should be in the download section at the bottom of your playlist.

 

If it's not on your playlist after install then I have no idea what to do about it.

This sometimes happens when you interrupt a download.

Go to Account Manager, then Transaction history.

This will tell you everything you have downloaded and ist just a click of the button to redownload anything that didnt work first time round.

yeah i couldn't, but i personally thought it was a screw up and i got some track packs for free!, but nah haha

 

 

I think it seems like thoes somgs arn't avaliable for us yet, but because they are for the US, i think the store assumes that we already have the pack?

I have noticed the same thing, I thought the PAL release has a few extra tracks on the disc which I assume will unlock as you play through. They show in the music store as already downloaded.

Sorry for the off topic, but can the guitar hero world tour instruments be used with Rock Band yet?.  I was on the understanding that a patch was going to be released so that it can.  Anyone know if it has been released??

As far as I'm aware there had been a patch released to make the GHWT instruments work with RB2 but nothing for RB1. To be honest I wouldn't hold your breath.

I can confirm that the UK import of Rock Band 2 works a treat on the 360 :D .... the RB1 content transfers across fine, and the RB2 game can see all content downloaded for the Aus/NZ sold RB game .. I haven't actually downloaded any songs in-game yet, but I don't see any reason why that won't work..

Replying to the original post;

 

Some songs will be listed as already purchased although you have not bought them.

 

This is region locked content at its best.

 

Those songs can only be purchased via the US PSN and not anywhere else.

Don't set up an account and buy these as they will not be compatible with PAL versions of the game.

 

Its very annoying I know - they have been getting better in recient months by making all songs world wide content.

 

I have also found if this happens, go back in about two weeks and the songs may be available to be purchased
